New Mayor Corey Woods to be Sworn in July 2nd
Participate in Kiwanis Sparkles on July 4th
The Kiwanis Club of Tempe will be distributing a package of two sparklers and a small American flag to everyone in the neighborhood. Let us know if you have more than two children and we will get you more sparklers. They would like everyone to light them at 9 pm on Saturday, July 4th since there will be no fireworks at the Town Lake this year. It would be nice to get a large group of neighbors to get together at the labyrinth and light them together. Thank you Kiwanis Club of Tempe!

The Hudson Will Be Opening in late August

The Importance of Flood Irrigation
Neighbor Ed Lebow has created a wonderful slide show showing the historical significance of flood irrigation in the Valley. Hudson Manor is part of that history.
Hudson Manor History
The grandson of the developer of our Hudson Manor dropped off a portfolio of old photos
of neighborhood and Tempe. See the History page for links to these
photos/articles. Phil also found a 1992 news video done on
the problems our park was having when a number of homeless people had made Hudson
Manor Part their home. Dennis Cahill had just been elected to our City Council and includes
neighbor Shelly White as well.
Hudson Manor Labyrinth - Neighbors Working Together!
Summer, 2007 marked the completion of our neighborhood project to construct a meditation
area at our Hudson Manor Park. On June 9th, a time capsule was sealed at the entry and the north
sign was set in place at the base of the peace pole. The arrow was set in black “Apache Tears”
from Globe. Since that time people have been seen eating there, children play games there, others
practice playing their guitars and flutes there and yes there was even a person spotted in a yoga
position in meditation! Weddings and memorial services have been performed there. This was truly a neighborhood project - with lots of people volunteering
their time and energy. Our labyrinth is now listed on the
web page. See our Labyrinth page for photos of the park in progress.
